We miss fishing too.  I used to go with my husband - fished from our boat.  But we have not gone fishing yet here.  Do you know if there are places where we can rent a boat - go lake fishing?

When we lived in Olongapo near SBMA in 1998, I went fishing a few times, but didn't catch anything!

Art, just a re(tired) Fil-Am:
I know of a friend/neighbor of ours (also a Fil/Am like myself) who brought all of his fishing poles, reels, other equipment and accessories with him here to the Philippines in hopes of going fishing one of these days!
Whenever we see each other at our monthly neighbor potluck get together he is always talking about making plans of renting a driver/vehicle, a boat and cottage and go fishing somewhere around the coast of Batangas, but I've been waiting almost a year now for his plans to come through! :o ???   

Art, just come here, handline's and I own the boat hahaha
